Sarclisa is a prescription drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat adults with multiple myeloma who have received at least two prior therapies, including lenalidomide and a proteasome inhibitor. Sarclisa is also known by its drug name, isatuximab-irfc.
Sarclisa is used as a targeted therapy for multiple myeloma. Sarclisa is a member of a class of drugs called monoclonal antibodies. Sarclisa is believed to work by binding to the surface of abnormal cells, causing cell death.
